Just three hours away from the UK is one of Europe’s last true great wildernesses. With mile upon mile of snow-laden taiga forest and glistening frozen lakes, Finland is the perfect playground for a huge variety of winter activities including cross-country skiing, dogsledding, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.
Miles from civilisation, the wilderness lodges we take you to on our Finland winter holidays offer immediate access to some of the country’s most remote regions, including Oulanka National Park in the north-east and the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park high above the Arctic Circle.
The home country of Moomins – a series of books and a comic strip by Finnish illustrator Tove Jansson – and the one and only Santa Claus, Finland is famous for many exciting reasons.

Never having done snowshoeing before we were not sure how easy it would be but if you can walk you can snowshoe! It was a wonderful novel way of exploring the woodlands around the basecamp with plenty of time to chill in the sauna at the end of the afternoon.
As a complete beginner with no expectations leading up to it, I was left amazed by the stunning location and excellent tour leaders. The leaders managed the group superbly, considering the various ages, experience and ability levels. The accommodation was fun, though a bit tight for space with 4 grown men sharing a 4-sleepr room, I felt like I was at camp. The skiing itself was one of the best things I have ever experienced and can’t wait to try again. Very demanding at times physically, but I pushed myself more than what was expected. A special mention of the food, which was all included. The chefs really know what they’re doing!
